Wingspan: 28"      Length: 23"      Power: .09

I had a couple of .09s laying around and had a sudden hankering for a control-line stunter. So I whipped out a couple of these beauties and promptly stuck the first one into the concrete at Mile Square Park. The second one lasted a little longer, but not much. I like control line, but it doesn't like me. The problem was not with the models - they flew great!

The obvious top priority for this design was simplicity. Okay, maybe I carried it a bit too far. Would a canopy have killed me?
